It’s almost time! Whether you’re a 1-star, 4-star, or 15+ Team Elite, you’ll make memories and friendships to last a lifetime.
On this cruise, you’ll experience the unique natural wonders only found in New Zealand— where each port is its own paradise.
- Tauranga is the home of the vibrant, welcoming Maori, New Zealand’s native people. Here, and in nearby Rotorua, you’ll enjoy kiwi fruit farms, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools, and other unique geothermal activity.
- Say hello to Napier. One of New Zealand’s “Twin Cities,” Napier boasts one of the most photographed attractions in the country, a statue on Marine Parade called Pania of the Reef.
- Get ready to enjoy the wonders of nature—Picton, set in upper Queen Charlotte Sound, is full of non-stop scenery and thrilling outdoor adventures. You’ll want to snap a few (dozen!) photos while you’re here.
- Next stop, Akaroa. This cozy town, near Christchurch, is nestled in the Banks Peninsula. The bay boasts some of New Zealand’s most epic natural wonders and water activities. It’s the place to get wet and go a little wild!
- And finally, welcome to Wellington! New Zealand’s picturesque capital is home to ancient wooden houses and a charming red cable car that will take you to the Wellington Botanic Gardens or Te Pa museum. And if you’re looking for great food, Wellington can take care of you in style. We saved the best for last!
